  3. isobar
  4. anemometer
  5. pressure gradient force
  1. a Area of low pressure where wind will move towards, associated with cloudy and rainy weather and air that is rising
  2. b moving weather front along which a warm air mass slides over a cold air mass, producing stratiform clouds and precipitation
  3. c a line on a weather map that joins points having the same barometric pressure
  4. d Drives air from areas of higher barometric pressure to areas of lower barometric pressure, causing winds.
  5. e an instrument that measures wind speed

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. the resistance encountered when one body is moved in contact with another. Slows down the speed of wind when it flows over land
  2. an instrument used to determine the direction that the wind is blowing
  3. Area of high pressure where wind will move away from, associated with dry and nice weather and air that is sinking
  4. an instrument that measure air pressure, An instrument that measures changes in air pressure without using a liquid. Changes in the shape of an airtight metal box cause a needle on the barometer dial to move.
  5. an area in which the barometric pressure is lower than that of the surrounding air

5 True/False questions

  1. Convection CurrentThe way Earth's rotation makes winds in the Northern Hemisphere curve to the right and winds in the Southern Hemisphere curve to the left.

          

  2. Occluded Fronta front where a warm air mass is caught between two colder air masses and brings cool temperatures and large amounts of rain and snow

          

  3. Air Massthe weight of the air above an object

          

  4. Jet Streamnarrow belt of strong winds that blows near the top of the troposphere across the US

          

  5. FrontArea of low pressure where wind will move towards, associated with cloudy and rainy weather and air that is rising
